$179.36 million. That’s how much an anonymous buyer paid for Pablo Picasso’s 1955 painting, Les femmes d’Alger (Version “O”), earlier today, becoming the most expensive artwork ever sold at auction.
It eclipses Francis Bacon’s Three Studies of Lucian Freud, which Christie’s sold for $142.4 million in 2013. Les femmes d’Alger (Version “O”) was last sold at auction for $31.9 million in 1997.

Banyan Tree

A Banyan is a fig that starts its life as an epiphyte (a plant growing on another plant) when its seeds germinate in the cracks and crevices on a host tree (or on structures like buildings and bridges). “Banyan” often refers specifically to the Indian banyan (Ficus benghalensis), which is the national tree of India, though the term has been generalized to include all figs that share a characteristic life cycle.

Earth from Mars and Mars from Earth

In this fascinating comparison photo we see a view of Earth from Mars (as seen by NASA’s Curiosity rover) and Mars from Earth as captured by Bill Dunford. Mars is the fourth planet from the Sun and the second smallest planet in the Solar System after Mercury. It is approximately 225,300,000 km away from Earth. It is also one of the five ‘visible’ planets from Earth.

Curiosity’s Latest Selfie from Mars

[NASA JPL Feb. 24, 2015] This self-portrait of NASA’s Curiosity Mars rover shows the vehicle at the “Mojave” site, where its drill collected the mission’s second taste of Mount Sharp. The scene combines dozens of images taken during January 2015 by the Mars Hand Lens Imager (MAHLI) camera at the end of the rover’s robotic arm. The pale “Pahrump Hills” outcrop surrounds the rover, and the upper portion of Mount Sharp is visible on the horizon. Darker ground at upper right and lower left holds ripples of wind-blown sand and dust.
The view does not include the rover’s robotic arm. Wrist motions and turret rotations on the arm allowed MAHLI to acquire the mosaic’s component images. The arm was positioned out of the shot in the images, or portions of images, that were used in this mosaic. This process was used previously in acquiring and assembling Curiosity self-portraits taken at sample-collection sites “Rocknest” (PIA16468), “John Klein” (PIA16937) and “Windjana” (PIA18390).

Pick Yourself Up and Pull Yourself Together

British artist Alex Chinneck reveals his latest illusory artwork in collaboration with Vauxhall Motors. Following 2014’s ‘floating building’ in Covent Garden, ‘Pick yourself up and pull yourself together’ sees the artist hang a new Vauxhall Corsa 15 feet in the air while still attached to the road at London’s Southbank Centre.
The collaboration with Vauxhall Motors turns a parking space on its head, peeling back 15 metres of arching tarmac to turn a one tonne car upside-down as the vehicle hangs from the curling road with no visible supports. Vauxhall Motors commissioned Chinneck to create a piece inspired by the new Corsa, which was launched earlier this year with a campaign based on an A-Z of British motoring. The gravity defying piece of parking will hang in Hungerford Car Park, beside The London Eye, until Wednesday 25th February 2015.

Earth Inside Saturn’s Rings

John Brady of Astronomy Central published an interesting post that compares objects in space with Earth and even land masses on our planet.
In the visualization above, Brady replaced the planet of Saturn with Earth to show how much larger it is, along with how massive Saturn’s rings are as well.

Corbusier-Inspired Chaise Bathtub

Seen here is a stunning Le Corbusier-inspired ‘chaise lounge’ bathtub by Omvivo. Le Cob Bath holds significantly less water than a conventional bath and can be used in a similar way to the traditional Japanese soaker bath. The cascading overflow into the pebbles below is simply elegant.

Never Forgotten

At the Tower of London 888,246 ceramic poppies were installed, each representing a British life lost in the First World War. The progressive art installation, entitled Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red, was created by ceramic artist Paul Cummins and stage designer Tom Piper.
Since August 5th, thousands of volunteers have helped plant the 888,246 poppies with the final poppy planted earlier today to commemorate Remembrance Day.
At the end of the installation each ceramic poppy planted will be available to purchase with all net proceeds shared equally amongst six service charities.

Embrace Impermanence

Embrace was a 72 ft wooden, cathedral-like sculpture of two human figures, “in celebration of all our relationships”. The sitpecific artwork was created by the Pier Group for Burning Man 2014.
It was the largest project to date for the Pier Group, which gained acclaim for its previous Burning Man installations The Pier, Pier 2, and the Ichthyosaur Puppet Project. Crews began construction on Embrace in October 2013 at the Generator community art space in Reno, and in studios in Vancouver and Portland.
